Update: TUS Airways flight 1162 took off from Tel Aviv without a hitch at 11:25am IST, landing 2 hours and 25 minutes later in Doha.



Rabbi Mendy Chitrik, Chairman of Alliance of Rabbis in Islamic States, notes that Chabad is making kosher food available in Doha as well:


Though some wires seem to have gotted crossed along the way. 😀


Apparently though, hot kosher meals and public prayers are not being allowed in Qatar.

Reuters is reporting that TUS airlines has received 11th hour approval to fly the first ever nonstop commercial flights between Israel and Qatar starting on Sunday.

TUS has been selling flights through Israeli travel agents for Israelis to attend the World Cup, which runs from November 20th through December 18th in Qatar. However they planned to make a technical stop in Cyprus as nonstop flights aren’t allowed between Israel and Qatar. Now those flights will be operated nonstop!

As part of the FIFA brokered deal between Israel and Qatar, special arrangements for Palestinians have to be made to be allowed to fly from Tel Aviv to Doha. Non-Israeli Palestinians normally fly from Amman as they are unable to get to Ben Gurion airport, so it will be interesting to see how that will be resolved.

This news is being overshadowed by fans’ and Budweiser’s disappointment that beer won’t be sold in the stadium perimeters.

Allowing nonstop flights from countries like Israel without diplomatic relations was a condition for Qatar hosting the World Cup, so I wouldn’t expect them to continue afterward. But, maybe one day we’ll be able to fly Qatar’s QSuites to the holy land?

Will you attend any World Cup matches in Doha?

Any Kosher food in Doha?


You sound excited to fly Qsuites to Israel… But after the story with the Israeli soldier in Iran, I’ve got second thoughts about flying over Iran (or other hostile countries) airspace….


Airspace is the least of your worries. Qataris are terrorists in suits who are in bed with Iran. If the Saudi’s aren’t willing to deal with them, I’m not visiting

Will Rabbi Chitrik be serving the Chabad drink of choice or is vodka “haram” ?


why haven’t you addressed the no kosher cooked food issue?

Big bad moish
